Image
According to Women's Wear Daily (WWD), Banana Republic is doing an Anna Karenina fall collection inspired by Joe Wright's upcoming film Anna Karenina (starring Pride & Prejudice stars Keira KnightleyandMatthew Macfadyen). This is great promo for AK movie and of course, Banana Republic is said to have produced the collection in partnership with Focus Features.

Watch: trailers for Joe Wright directed feature films (Anna Karenina, Hanna, The Soloist, Atonement, and Pride & Prejudice)

Image
Now, that the first trailer for Joe Wright's new 'Anna Karenina' film starring Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen!is here (which was released about a week ago today),I thought I'd compile all the trailers of brilliant and acclaimed directorJoe Wright's five feature films in one post.

In such a short time of this award winning filmmaker's directorial career (following the award-winning box office successes “Pride & Prejudice” and “Atonement”), JW had directed all 5 of these wonderful and amazing (from period to musical to action and back to period) feature films.

On DVD and Blu-ray Today: Wrath of the Titans

Image
Available now onDVD,Blu-ray, and Combo Pack (as well as OnDemand, iTunes, and digital downloads)is Rosamund Pike's recently released film,Wrath of the Titans, which she co-starred with Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Edgar Ramirez, Toby Kebbell, and Bill Nighy.

The film opened in theaters March 30th (about 87 days and 12.4 weeks) and was a bit disappointing on its opening weekend as far as domestic box-office gross is concern, as it opened at $33.6 million (at #2 behind The Hunger Games), and still did not reached nor surpassed its $150 million budget, which isn't good box-office-wise, but not worse compared to Disney's John Carter. According to Box Office Mojo, as of June 24th, whileit only grossed at $83.6 million in domestic, it did much better overseas with $218.3million and made a worldwide total of $301.9 million.

Movie Casting News: Jena Malone cast as a female lead in new indie film 'The Go-Getters'

Image
According to Deadline, Jena Malone has joined the cast (as Danneel Dobson) of a new indie film titled The Go-Getters. Interesting, I had to re-read the title 'cause at first I thought it was a typo, lol...Well, the funny thing was that I remember she was in another indie film with the same title with Zooey Deschanel. I checked out her IMDB profile's filmography just to be sure and sure enough, she was in another indie film back in 2007 of almost similar title: The Go-Getter (sans the "s"). That one was a road trip film though, but still it has a similar title with this new indie film she just signed on...
